Welcome to the Department of Computer Science.
University College Cork occupies a unique place in the history of Computer Science and Information Technology because Boolean algebra, which provides the mathematical basis for computer design, was named after George Boole, UCC's first Professor of Mathematics.
Today, the Department of Computer Science is one of the largest academic departments in UCC, with 30 academic staff, 13 support staff and 32 post-doctoral researchers. There are approximately 450 undergraduate students, 100 students following taught post-graduate programmes and 45 research students, the vast majority at doctoral level. Degrees at BSc, MSc and PhD levels are offered in addition to Certificates, Diplomas, Higher Diplomas and Post-graduate Diplomas.
The department is internationally recognised for its research leadership in several areas of computing science. The research conducted by the department's academic staff is complemented by the activities of the research staff.
Recently, the department moved to new, purpose-built facilities in the Western Gateway Building. This hi-tech facility is located to the west of the UCC campus to which it will be linked by an attractive riverside path. Students benefit from state-of-the-art labs which have been fitted out with the most up-to-date hardware and software. The lecture theatres in the new building have been equipped with advanced audio-visual equipment.
We hope you will take the opportunity to visit us soon in our new location. If you would like more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the following link to our Computer Sciences & Information Technology brochure.
